This was our first time here and first time trying falafel. Maybe it is the best but we just thought it was ok as it was our first time trying falafel. We also tried the chicken kabob in a pita bread which was very good. It is a very cute restaurant, comfy as a matter of fact. The food was... More

This place is a find in the middle of nowhere, Chester, NY, go figure. This is your small hole in the wall that knocks your socks off. There is plenty of street parking close by and it's handicap accessible. The interior is clean, the staff is friendly and attentive, and the new dining room is nicely done. I had never... More

I'd never eaten Israeli or Mediterranean food until I went here and I was pleasantly surprised. As I was apprehensive, I asked the waitress to prepare my food just as I thought I would like it, and she wrote it down carefully. I got exactly what I wanted. It was delicious. There was a lot of food that I couldn't... More

We always visit Allen's when we are in the area. The falafel here is the best outside of Israel, maybe the best anywhere! All kinds of Israeli cuisine. Very generous portions. Babaganoush you can't believe! And now they serve beer and wine. Service is friendly and helpful. Don't miss it! I love the falafel platter. My wife had the chicken... More

The other Trip Advisor reviews are true; this is some of the best falafel around! My daughter and I split the falafel plate and the falafel platter, and each got some different sides. She wanted the French Fries, while I wanted the rice, and she liked the Israeli salad came only with one of those dishes, while I loved the... More
